The timing couldn’t be better for a film about the power of protest.

FROM SELMA TO STONEWALL. ARE WE THERE YET? Dallas Premiere at the historic Texas Theatre on SUNDAY, FEB. 12 for ONE NIGHT ONLY! compares and contrasts the conflicts at the heart of the black and LGBT civil rights movements while following a black heterosexual preacher and a white lesbian activist as they look for common ground between their fights for equality. Rev. Gil Caldwell, a long-time activist and friend of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Marilyn Bennett, a writer and activist, will be available for Q&A after the screening of this powerful film.

Thanks to Jimmy Creech for making this awesome video discussing how people from different walks of life realize an earth-shattering discovery with a journey that will change your life forever!

Movie Trailer:

You'll find the film brilliant in scope, humorous, and achingly sad as this powerful film begins in Selma with the Civil Rights Movement and follows the LGBT RIghts Movement galvanized by Stonewall riots. Then, it delves into some of today’s most explosive and discussed subjects: racial injustice, police brutality, transgender discrimination, LGBTQ homelessness, and the intersection of these issues. The Texas Theatre Premiere FROM SELMA TO STONEWALL, explores Civil Rights and LGBTQ equality movements through the journey of two unlikely friends proving progress are the results of choices we make together. Showing their engagement in response to injustice with reciprocity for equal treatment and compassion gives us immense hope for what we can accomplish in the face of today's presidential leadership if we just stand up and fight. Together.
